I read quite a simple routine to stop Google Ads from showing up in your browser. I haven’t thoroughly tested this, but at first glance it seems to work.
Ofcourse I do reconise the benefits and purpose of ad-funded sites and solutions, on the other hand it is nice to know there are ways to (re)gain control over how much ads you allow.
1. Before. Notice the ads on the right side ?
2. Add *.googlesyndication.com to your restricted sites in IE
3. No more ads in Google, nor on sites displaying Google syndicated ads
